The excellent Spencer Tracy and the remarkable Bette Davis can be seen in their only onscreen-teaming in this solid Michael-Curtiz-directed Warner Bros.-Production about a hard-boiled prisoner, who risks his life to save his girl and keeps teasing the prison warden. Thanks to Curtiz' compelling work the loose adaptation of Lewis E. Lawes' novel turns into a watchable and quite memorable Mix of realistic Prison drama, pathetic love story and social commentary with some funny, some action-packed and melodramatic moments.
